|Silk Stone Moving||絲石動|
"Silk Stone Moving...featured Michael Mao's intriguing choreography,
...slides with oriental symbolism by photographer Howard Finkelson, and
the music of the silk string zither by master zither player, John Thompson.
Together, the trio evoked a soothing almost calming mood in the hour-long
performance, with no intermission....It would seem positively impossible
to improve on this work, which totally charmed - almost hypnotized!
- the audience with the 'what happens now?' Mao choreography."

John Thompson, in playing the guqin silk-string zither, China's musical equivalent to its classical painting and calligraphy, "soars beyond the ordinary world to bring the beauty of the qin to music lovers worldwide." (Xu Kuanghua, Hangzhou, 2002). " Very elegant." (Wu Wenguang, Beijing, 2003).
Howard Finkelson's 'photo abstracts' "...expand the stage and blend sound and movement in a surreal space....His images of China are unlike any other." (South China Morning Post, 2000).
